Our little California road trip was so much fun. I knew I definitely wanted to stop at Bixby Creek Bridge in Big Sur. The views were phenomenal and did not disappoint. In case you are planning a trip, there is a little parking lot (limited spots) where we stopped to […]

Two Hurt Paws | Life Update

March and April weren’t the kindest months to our household.  Both Zora and I hurt one of our paws, which meant lots of vet and doctor bills, bandages, ice, and PAIN.  Lots of pain. ^This sums up how we feel about it all. First poor Z split her nail up […]

^Reaching for Charles the first time they met.    On this day last year we adopted our sweetest girl, Zora.  When Charles picked her up, it was all over for us.  The connection was that strong.  There was no doubt, she was all ours and it was meant to be […]

The Fine Art of A Rainy Day.

Southern California got pummeled by torrential rain last weekend, which we needed (and still need) terribly.  I was so lucky that it was my day off and I got to snuggle with my Zora all day on Friday when we got the worst of it.  For a one year old […]
